Why would he do that when he can just wait two years and go wherever he wants....


Hypothetical... because I saw that Cleveland was interested in trading for Love.

Let's say next year Cleveland trades Tristan Thompson, Dion Waiters, and their 2014 draft pick for Love...

2014 is also they year that LBJ also becomes a free agent and I really think he will return to Cleveland.

Now the Cavs have a nucleus of Irving, Love, and James... The point is, you never know what kind of situation you are going to go to. If Love gets traded to a good situation, he might just ink a contract extension.

If he's smart, he goes to Houston.  He has one of the best young players in the league (Harden) and nice pieces like Parsons around him.  If they had to get rid of Asik, they could acquire another nice piece there.  He had a similar group of guys in Orlando when he went to the Finals, where he was the anchor down low while the team bombed 3's around him.  Not to mention Harden is better than anyone he played with in Orlando.

I'm a big believer (and made this conspiracy comment after the lottery), that LBJ back to Cleveland will happen as a PR move/huge story for the NBA. Stern/Silver know this and wanted to make sure LBJ had a nice nucleus to return to, giving them a couple #1 picks and the pieces to acquire guys to create an enticing nucleus for LeBron. 

 

Irving/Love/LBJ, if the first two stay healthy, is downright unfair.

Yeah, there's your new big three.
